Creative Writing and Empathy: How Writing Fiction Helps You Connect With Others

Creative Writing and Empathy: How Writing Fiction Helps You Connect With Others | Books | Scoop.it

Writing forces you to “walk in your characters’ shoes” in a way that reading can’t.

 

Empathy and fiction: what’s the connection? Empathy is an important thing: when you lack it completely, you’re a psychopath, and no one wants that, except perhaps if you happen to be a character in a thriller.

 

One of my friends who studies psychology posted this on Facebook a while back: it’s an article about why men should read fictionand claims that reading fiction teaches men to empathize with others.

The communication of knowledge and ideas is intrinsic to the human condition. Our earliest ancestors had a rich oral tradition, through which they passed on what they knew about the world, often across great distances.

 

Our systems of communication have evolved and matured, from those oral traditions to the earliest cuneiform writings and all the way up through books and newspapers, to radio and television.
